INITIAL REPORT: Butler County sheriff asks former presidents Bush, Obama to help re-open government
“I want you to be aware of that I don’t take threats very kindly and if you think I am scared, or it scares me, or intimidates me, you’re badly mistaken,” he said. “It does not.”
Jones said the threat is under investigation and his office will “track it back as far as we can.”
Jones also said receiving threats is “part of the job” and that “making threats on my life” won’t stop him from speaking out.
Jones on Tuesday sent former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama letters to help “get things moving in our country.”
“I think both sides are in a divide and until they come back to the table and start doing some negotiations, these two people can get that done if they’re willing to come out of retirement,” Jones told the Journal-News.
